Covid-19: 1 new death, 85 additional confirmed cases

Coronavirus 85 new cases and

People are being urged to exercise extreme caution this bank holiday weekend, to try stop the spread of Covid-19.

That figure is a huge jump on the 14 cases which were notified in the previous 24 hours.

At least 18 of the newest cases are from a cluster at a dog food factory in Co Kildare, which has been closed for the past week.

ACTING Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn has warned that Covid-19 is "accelerating across Europe" and that he hopes Ireland can avoid a "similar scenario".

Offaly has had a rise of one new case of Covid-19, according to figures released this evening.

A small number of cases reported today are associated with the construction industry, and there are four clusters in private households and extended families.

Dr Glynn said the Republic of Ireland was now "at a crucial point in our response to Covid-19".

Ireland reported its highest daily number of COVID-19 cases for two months on Thursday, with 85 cases confirmed compared to an average of around 20 per day during the past two weeks.

The new deal works out nearly the same price per treatment as the 2 billion dollar award last week to Pfizer and BioNTech . Sanofi is leading the clinical development of the vaccine and expects to start a trial by the end of this year.

There have now been a total of 1,763 deaths in Ireland and 26,027 confirmed cases.

Kilkenny had one new case to reach 357.

"This weekend, the six key things people need to do are limit the size of your network & time you spend with them, keep your distance, meet up outside if possible, wash your hands, wear a face covering and download the COVID Tracker App".

There has now been a total of 26,065 confirmed cases of the virus in Ireland.

He said that a Public Health team had been on the ground since, and all staff members were tested.

The total for Dublin in the county breakdown is 12,487 - up by seven.

Dr Glynn said it was too early to say when a decision would be taken.

For Covid-19, the World Health Organization says that data to date suggests that 80% of infections are mild or asymptomatic; 15% are severe infection, requiring oxygen and 5% are critical, requiring ventilation.
